Holiday Pet Safety Tips

We wish you and your pet a healthy and happy holiday season. Here are some tips to keep your pet safe during your celebrations.
  • Place your Christmas tree in the corner of block it off from your pet.
  • Keep decorations out of your pet's reach. Low hanging tinsel, ornaments or lights are hazards to your pet's health.
  • Keep holiday plants away from your pet. Mistletoe, holly, amaryllis and cyclamen are all poisonous to pets. Poinsettias are toxic, as are live trees.
  • Burning candles should be placed on high surfaces. This can prevent fires and accidental burns.
  • Keep your pet away as you wrap gifts. String, plastic and wrapping paper cause intestinal blockage if ingested.
  • Keep holiday food away from your pet. Many rich and fatty holiday foods can cause serious problems for your pet.
  • If you have guests, make accommodations for your pet. Your pet may be fearful of visitors or extremely excited. Either way, a quiet room away from visitors and food may be in order.
Contact us with any concerns you have about your pet's safety as we enter the holiday season. We want this to be a joyful time for you and your pet!
